Coconut-Lime Rice

"Put the lime in the coconut, you drank them both up..." - Harry Nilsson
Summer time is just around the corner, but in my kitchen it's already summer time. I shopped earlier today and stocked up on limes, lemons, coconut juices, shredded coconuts, watermelons, can tell what my mindset is.

Here’s a flavorful dish that will transport you to the Caribbean islands with a simple bite. One of my all time fave rice dishes, Coconut-Lime Rice. The coconut flavor yells "where's the beach" and the lime just keeps you refreshed.

Coconut Lime Rice
  • 2 cups Jasmine Rice
  • 3 cups Water*
  • 2 Tablespoons Virgin Coconut Oil
  • 2 teaspoons Salt
  • 1 whole Lime, Juiced
  • ¾ cups Fresh Cilantro, Minced
Combine rice, water, oil and salt in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce to low and simmer for 20 minutes. When done, add and mix lime juice and cilantro. 

Ideal pairing: fish, or on it's own.

Enjoy GFF!

*If you want to turn up the volume on the coconut flavors then do what my mom does, she uses coconut milk in place of water.
